Between the Shadow and the Soul.



Today's inspiration for a shoot (and something I wish I wrote):

I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
So I love you because I know no other way
...

Excuse the mush. Must be the weather (or the hormones). *grin*

Pin It!

Thanks, Chel. I don't know why, but there's a sense of sadness in this photo. And maybe that's why you and I love it.

And those words, achingly beautiful.

Must be the weather. It feels like Christmas is happening in January. Tugnaw.

I love Pablo Neruda, Ai! As always, you know how to capture moments with your photograph and chosen or own words. :)
